Good morning :) How are you today? Ready for an Easter idea? Easter isn’t until April 20 … it felt so far away … now it’s less than a month!
There are several foods that come to mind when I think of Easter … two of them being chocolate and eggs. Do you like crispy rice cereal in your chocolate and isn’t everything better on a stick? I hope you answered YES … because today I made Krispie Chocolate Egg Pops for you!
There is a list of Easter ideas that I have planned for this year and these Egg Pops were not on the that list! They were a happy accident all because I went to JoAnn’s to buy drapery lining fabric and supplies to make a handle for this basket cake that I was making for a bridal shower (I’ll share the info shortly) …
I did buy the supplies for the handle … did not buy the fabric lining (those dining room curtains may never get done), but found these cute sparkly foam eggs to make a wreath and another pan that I needed …
I carried this Easter Egg Cookie Pan with me as I shopped the entire store … tried to talk myself out of buying it … didn’t listen to myself … found out it was on sale … sold! It went home with me and I knew that Krispie Chocolate Egg Pops would be my first Easter post for this year. This is a great pan, but if you can’t find it … maybe you already have something in silicone or a candy mold.
These pops were easy peasy and would be a great project for the kiddos to help decorate! Wouldn’t it be fun if you make the chocolate eggs ahead of time and invite everyone over for a decorating party ;)
This is what you will need to make about 15 pops …
- 1 pound chocolate candy coating (such as CandiQuik)
- 1 cup crisp rice cereal (such as Rice Krispies)
- 15 lollipop sticks (I used 8″ sticks)
- Wilton Easy Decorate Egg Cookie Pan
Then pull out a few candies and sprinkles from your cabinet …
- Edible Confetti
- SweetWorks Candy Pearls
- m&m’s minis
- anything else you may like!
Let’s get started …
- Melt the chocolate according to the package directions. Set aside about 1/2 cup of melted candy to use later. Mix remaining melted candy with the cereal … spoon into mold and tap pan on the counter to help release air bubbles.
- Insert stick into candy … rotate stick to cover with candy … chill for a few minutes. Note: make sure you have a clear space in your fridge and use caution when placing pan in the fridge, because the sticks move easily.
- The pops should come out of the pan easily … if they don’t … put back in the fridge for a few more minutes. Hint: If you like … use a toothpick and some melted candy to fill in the air bubbles … I wasn’t that ambitious … nobody complained as they scarfed down the pops … that’s just the way my guys are! I’m sharing some pops with the neighbor kids later today … wonder if they will notice?
Use the melted candy that you set aside (I put it in a squeeze bottle, toothpicks work also) to attach candy decorations! I do have one word of caution … the sprinkles were a little messy … if you are letting the kids do this, they will need help!
Hope you have fun decorating your Krispie Chocolate Egg Pops :)
I’d love to hear from you!
